Please please please vote.

After a good long rest, the blog has woken from its hibernation on the eve of a federal election.

I would certainly not tell anyone who to vote for, [cough...NDP!...cough] but I urge you all to get out there and vote tomorrow. Even if your candidate stands no chance of winning, or if they are sure to win without your support, please just get your vote on.

Your party will get $1.75 in federal funding per eligible vote received, so getcher ass to your polling station, please. If you're a tory, I won't be too offended if you stay home instead. Check out Elections Canada for details.

Have you seen the ads in BC featuring big daddy Jack's moustache? The only place I could find it is here ( click on "Jack Talk" and please excuse my continued inability to understand how links work. I think his response to this smear ad alone is worth voting for:

OTTAWA (CP) - The only thing NDP Leader Jack Layton has not said during this campaign is "Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin," but he's come close. What's making his hair stand up is a Tory ad that shows a moustache superimposed on ordinary people saying things like they want higher taxes.
Layton, who's agreed to shave his moustache to raise money for a charity after Jan. 23, has begun to be possessive of his lip fur.

In Terrace, B.C., Layton began speaking about it in the third person the other night.
"I understand there is a rogue moustache that's making an appearance in advertisements in British Columbia. I don't know if you've seen this, but I have got to tell you what this moustache here has to say.

"This moustache says we're running against the Conservatives because their ideas are wrong for working families. This moustache says the NDP will be there day in and day out for the working families of Canada."

Nice! Prepare to get bitch-slapped, grits and tories....I hope. A girl can dream, right?

There used to be a Tory party in the US but they disappeared. I guess they went to Canada?
